Sailor belongs to William Ellis, the
delivery man. Mr. Kilts has a large
number of fine horses, soma of them
thoroughbreds, but he values Sailor
above auy of them. Sailor is traiard
to the saddle or to drive. His owner
guides him while driving by word of
command, without using the lines.
"Go slow. Sailor." "Tfinre, turn
out for that rig and get ahead of that
sprinkling cart." "Turn to the loft at
the next street corner. " ' 'Now get
move on you ; we are in a hurry "
And Sailor does precisely as he is
told, never making a mistake.
He knows all the principal business
houses in town by name, and will go
to the place named from any part of
the city. The other day Mr. Ellis
was out driving with a friend, and,
after putting the horse through his
various paces and demonstrating that
he understood every word said to him,
he told him to go to lleilner's corner
and to bo quick aliout It It was
several blocks away, but Sailor lost
no time in getting there. After a
brief stop ho .was told to go down to

Mr. Ellis bought him three years
ago for $110, out of a band of range
horses, and since then he has fre
quently refused ."i00 for him. Ho is

DEVOURED 11Y WORMS.
Children often cry, not from iiain
but from hunger, although fed abund
antly. The entire trouble arises
from Inanition, their food is not as
similated, but- devoured hv worms.
A few doses of White's Vermifuge
will cause them to cease crying and
begin to thrive at once, very much to
the surprise and joy of tho mother.
